With all the CPI-IW indices till June 2021 that will be used for the calculation of the Dearness Allowance from July 2021 available, the DA from July 2021 will certainly be 31%, a hike of 3%. The Dearness Allowance is calculated based on the CPI-IW indices over the previous 12 months during the January and July of every year. As the government has removed the DA's freeze order, a hike can be announced during August or September. The Central Government Employees will have another reason to cheer before the next festival season.
